Gulfport, FL – DRV Gallery is pleased to open applications and invite artists to take part in ‘Art for a Cause,’ a juried exhibition for artists to support a cause of their choice. The listed deadline for entry is December 15th and the gallery will choose from the first 50 submissions received. The exhibition runs from January 19, 2023 – February 3, 2003 at DRV Gallery in Gulfport.
Artists are invited to apply online at DRVGallery.com. Submissions will be judged by Katie Deits, Executive Director at Florida CraftArt, and awards will be handed out to the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place selections at the opening reception at DRV Gallery on January, 19 at 6pm.
The gallery will collect a 35% commission from any sale made that is part of the exhibit and donate 10% of that commission to the artist’s chosen cause. 2D and 3D formats of fine art will be considered, including wall-hung, free-standing, suspended or pedestal mounted submissions.
“I created this event as a way to give back to the community and as an opportunity to introduce DRV Gallery to a broad audience of visual artists and their supporters,” says gallery owner Deserie Valloreo. “I have so many causes I would like to support that I couldn’t pick just one, so I left it up to the participating artists to choose which cause they want to support. I am excited to see which causes are selected and how the artists convey the chosen cause in their artwork.”
‘Art for a Cause’ is the gallery’s debut themed exhibition, with more planned throughout 2023. For additional information about upcoming events and rules for entry, visit DRVGallery.com.
